Treasures from the Brooklyn Flea

3

I had a whirlwind night in New York City this weekend.  My friend Beth and I drove down on Saturday to celebrate our friend Danielle’s birthday in Manhattan.   We stayed with Beth’s sister Amelia, who is an architecture student at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.

As a former RA, she had her pick of rooms.  This is the view she scored (from a private balcony, too!):

Hello, Manhattan!

Danielle’s party was dance-tastic (and I wouldn’t expect anything less from one of my Vegas buds!).  We went to a karaoke bar and a club, both in the East Village.  And that’s about as much as I can say about it to the general internet. 😉

On Sunday, Beth, Amelia, Beth’s college bud Matt, and I headed to the Brooklyn Flea, an amazing flea market in Fort Greene on Sundays.  The building itself was stunning.

If I had had a wad of cash on me, I would have gone crazy — there were amazing prints of antique maps, wacky cowboy boots, vintage clothing, and creative, handmade jewelry.

Most of all, there were rings.  I am CRAZY about rings, especially huge cocktail rings.  Here are my favorites:

HOW AWESOME is this ring?  The ring only hooked underneath the fingers!

Loved this one, too, of the tiger eating the finger.  I need a good gold ring.

Fun cocktail ring.

This one was huge — that’s as far as I could close my fingers!

By far the most inventive — I loved these rings that were assembled from watch parts.

I’m conserving funds lately, so I didn’t end up buying anything for myself — though I did get a little gift for my sister.  (No pics of it, since I haven’t seen her at home in days and haven’t had a chance to give it to her yet!)

I love New York, and now that I’ve spent some decent, substantial time in Brooklyn, I love it there, too!

    ps: Brooklyn IS New York… It’s one of the five boroughs!

    VERY true. I now love Brooklyn as its own entity, not just New York in general!
